Decorate Your Space

It might be challenging to commit to a specific design or aesthetic in your house. What if you try something and immediately dislike it? Or perhaps you're a sucker for the latest trends and can't decide how you want to decorate your home. What about those who only stay in a place for a short time? Some also don't want to go through the hassle of decorating. Many people have given up on the design process before it has even begun because of these difficulties.

If you're afraid of committing when it comes to home decor, you're not alone. But it doesn't mean you have to live with a bare minimum of furniture and no decor until you've decided how you want to approach your home's design. Always remember that a decorated home is a lot more pleasant and friendly environment.

Fortunately, there are simple and inexpensive design concepts that can easily change any room into your own.

Invest in quality foundations.

Strong fundamental parts are typically used in spaces that are straightforward to upgrade at any moment. This means furniture that is neutral, adaptable, and versatile. Consider these key items to be foundational parts you can build, allowing each area to work as it should.

Unless money isn't an issue, you're unlikely to change out when the whim strikes to redecorate. Instead, you'll rearrange the area around these pieces, giving your place a completely new aesthetic, even if the core pieces remain the same.

Why invest if you're going to change things later? Even the most unwilling to commit are unlikely to buy a new sofa every time the trend winds change direction. So it's essential to invest in high-quality, adaptable, and comfy foundations to benefit our budget and sanity. These pieces will be chameleons, capable of adapting to a variety of styles. They can adapt to your style and help you get the most bang for your buck over time.

Don't know where to begin? Here are some must-have foundational pieces:

  • A neutral-colored or classic leather sofa.
  • A rug made of natural fibers.
  • A bed frame made of wood or metal.
  • A dining table made of wood.

Transfer pieces from one room to another

Want to redesign your home without breaking the bank? Shop from the comfort of your own home. Plants, ottomans, carpets, and paintings may easily be moved from room to room, giving your space a completely different look and feel. Not only that, but the item you're moving will have a new appearance and feel. An area rug in the living room vs. in the home office has an entirely different vibe.

The same piece in a different location can have completely other purposes. A console table, for example, can be used in the entryway and then moved behind your sofa to serve as a sofa table or as a vanity in the bedroom.

Apply a new coat of paint.

If you're up for a bigger project, give your room a pop of color by painting the walls—either an accent wall or the entire room. One of the simplest and cheapest temporary decor ideas is a fresh coat of paint. 

Painting your walls a neutral paint color like beige, taupe, or off-white will have the same impact as your high-quality, neutral core furniture. This is if you want to vary the color palette of your space regularly.

Make a statement with removable wallpaper.

Are you looking for a somewhat more involved decoration idea? Try decorating with wallpaper with a peel-and-stick backing. It has the same look as traditional wallpaper but is removable, so there's no need to commit long-term. It's also simple to put on and take off, with a significant visual impact. This is a popular method to liven up your home, and it's one of our favorite high-impact but temporary design ideas for renters. Thanks to the many brands and styles available today, peel-and-stick wallpaper are available in fashionable and timeless prints. Additionally, it's an excellent method to completely remodel a space without breaking the bank or committing to a long-term project.

Switch up your pillowcases and bedding.

Pillows and bedding can completely transform a room with minimal effort, which is why they're one of our favorite temporary decor ideas. Throw pillows are affordable for the impact they have, and they can be replaced whenever you want a new design.

When you have a neutral-colored sofa in your living room, you can change out the pillows when you get tired of the existing color and style. This would give your seating area a completely new look. A neutral bedspread is the same way. Put new pillows and a throw to the end of the bed to give it a new look.

When it comes to throw pillows, you have the option of purchasing whole new pillows or simply replacing the cover on an existing cushion. Do you enjoy trying out new trends but are on a budget? Using a throw pillow cover to experiment with a new color, material, or design is ideally the best thing to do.

Try leaning your art.

Hanging items with nails gives the impression of permanence, but it can also harm walls if done incorrectly. Instead, consider leaning art on the wall if you don't want to put nails in the wall or if you live in a rental and your landlord won't allow it. Set a larger piece on the floor or lean small and medium-sized art on the surface of a console, dresser, or shelf to accomplish this. This gives your work a more relaxed feel, and you may stack art and furnishings for a more curated appearance. The best part is that if you don't like it or are ready for something new, you can quickly move these parts about and swap them out.

Avoid mounted furniture.

Wall-mounted furniture is somewhat permanent and difficult to move, so if you want to change up your layout and design frequently, we recommend bypassing it entirely. Likewise, drilling holes in the wall is something that habitual rearrangers should avoid. If you prefer the look of floating shelves or a wall-mounted bar, a freestanding bookshelf or bar cart is a better option.

Choose items with a variety of designs.

Easy-to-assemble and remove modular parts are one of our most adaptable decor ideas. Pieces like a modular sofa or sectional with a chaise placed on either the left or right side offer the most flexibility. It's as simple as changing your decor preferences.

An upholstered sofa with a changeable slipcover is another option. This allows you to replace the cover whenever you wish by replacing it with one made of different materials or colors. You might rotate a few on a seasonal basis or keep a couple on hand when you need a change.
